It was a beautiful day on the tarmac today in Alameda. So much so that we had our jackets off by 10 am and I got really, really burnt on my arms. But we had such a blast walking the aisles and looking for goodies. I got 2 silver trays, an ironstone platter, a small table with 2 drawers that I will be painting and shabbying up, a little step stool, a great botanical print, an antique window, and much more!
A lot of it will be for resale, when I debut my latest venture, A PARIS FLEA MARKET Sidewalk Sale by Reese & Marie on November 1st at my home.
I will be featuring repurposed items, chalkboards, painted cottage style furniture, cake stands, lavender, shabby items, beautiful handmade beaded jewelry designed by my sister, Jonna, and much much more. It is my first foray into resale and I can only hope it goes well and I actually make a little profit. I will of course cover it in my blog, but if any of you live near Berkeley, CA, I am only about 20 minutes up the road and I would love to meet you!
These first pictures are from an adorable shop in Roseville, CA called The Tattered House . Just adorable stuff and the owners were really friendly. They have a blog also, so check it out.
I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I saw this settee with burlap sides! I have seen this in magazines, but never in the flesh and I was swooning! I so want to recover my funky old chair in my family room like this!
This last pic is of grain sack custom hand made pillows and lampshades, by Carmela Janssen. Her home was featured in Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion Mag a couple of years ago. Beautiful work but at $100 per pillow, a bit out of my price range.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
